  • NewsForge: Redmond Linux: Stripped-down Linux business aims at desktop newbies (Aug 19, 2001, 21:08)
    "Our goal, simply put, is the ever-elusive Linux desktop," says Rick Collette, v.p. of marketing and coder for Redmond Linux, and founder of the embedded deepLinux project, now merged with Redmond Linux. "How are we going to reach that goal? We have all the time in the world, something many other companies don't have. See, we have no infusion, seed, venture, or other funding, and no one to answer to for it. I pump what little money I have into keeping the infrastructure going, and saving here and there so that we can produce CDs."

  • Andrea Arcangeli: Linux 2.4.9aa3 (Aug 19, 2001, 06:54)
    "Updated to run expand_stack always with the mm write semaphore acquired to fix the race conditions. Upgrading the semaphore during map_user_kiobuf was quite painful so I just disallowed to do direct I/O on a growsdown VMA (you can still do that as far as it doesn't need to be live extended on the fly)."
